    i was just wondering if you have a wii mod chip if you are able to download and burn games to dvds like you are with ps2 (which is what i do) and if you are how big are the games usually? and if there are any problems with doing it?

    thanks

    Welcome to GBAtemp.net!

    When you have a modchip, you can offcourse download and burn your Wii games, that's why you installed the modchip for!
    It's quite simple:

    You download the Wii ISO.
    You burn the .iso file on a DVD-R with IMGBurn.
    You take the DVD and put it on your Wii, and it will work [​IMG]

    The games are always 4.7GB big.

    There are some games that require some work to get them to work, especially newer games. You should just check the release topics then, the problems and solutions are usually discussed there.

    Not exactly true Satangel. When downloading games, try to head towards games that have been scrubbed. This leads to smaller download sizes.

    except scrubbed isos are no longer clean and the scene doesn't release scurbbed isos (except for japcrap) so you've got to rely on some webwares lamer to do the work for yo. That means not every game gets scrubbed and a higher chance of failure.

    In the end they are also 4.7GB, always like that.
    But I should have mentioned scrubbed games, no doubt about that [​IMG]
